Rope Heights: average 1, 3 and 5 feet from mat (1.5 to 2 feet between ropes)

Rope Dimensions: at least 1 inch diameter, 60-80 feet per rope (15-20' per side)

Number of Ropes: 3 top to bottom, 3 per side, usually 12 tightened segments

  1. The height of the ropoes makes no sense! How can they be one foot apart if its '1, 3,5' " from the mat? So they're 2feet apart?

    1. I'm sorry, you're correct, thanks for spotting this! I was looking up various sources as I was writing this, because I had seen one set of measurements, then others. In my mind I was thinking that, linearly, you count 1, skip 2, 3 feet is the next rope, skip 4, 5 feet is the next.

      Alternating rope heights, skipping a foot in between, worked out in my mind to be "1 foot apart", backed with another measurement I read that DOES say they're 1 foot apart - I think that set of measurements might have been referring to the turnbuckle distances and not the ropes. It was confusing! =)
